A few hundred people lined the streets in Winterport to help honor the men and women of our armed forces.The parade kicked off around 11 o’clock Monday morning as veterans, students, firefighters, and others marched down Main Street.Members of the Hampden Academy marching band were on hand to help energize the crowd.Winterport residents were very appreciative of the parade participants, as well as the meaning behind Memorial Day. “Well we have so much to be thankful for,” Said Winterport resident John Pinkos. “So many have fought and served for our country to keep our freedom and it’s good that we remember all those that served and all those that gave their lives. We can carry the tradition of remembering all these people.”The Winterport parade was highlighted by two separate ceremonies to honor soldiers.
